Karen: Try disconnecting your box from the mains for around 30 seconds or so before reconnecting it again and allowing it to go through the "searching for listings" procedure, as the problem you are experiencing is more inclined to be down to a glitch having developed in the box rather than anything connected with cancelling your subscription.

Bren: You have to connect it to a dish - read the 'most popular questions' on this site.

Adrian: Yes, as all BBC1/2 regional channels are able to be viewed on a Sky box anywhere in the UK, irrespective of whether a person subscribes to Sky or not.

Anyone thinking on cancelling their subscription can easily find out what they will, or will not, be able to view by simply removing the viewing card and running through the list of channels normally viewed. This procedure on "some" boxes being more accurate if the box is disconnected from the mains after having removed the card, the box being reconnected minus the card, said card being reinserted after checking the list.

Dawn : A "no signal" warning can be down to a number of reasons including a defective box, although this applies more to older Sky boxes, maybe you could indicate the model involved? e.g: standard or Sky+ / Sky+HD etc.

However, this warning is more usually connected with problems associated with the dish, or cabling to/from, including it (the dish) having moved "slightly" out of alignment, e.g: blown by the wind etc, the movement necessary to do this being so minute that it couldn't be detected by the human eye.

If you are using a standard box, press: Services - 4 - 6 and checking if any signal / quality levels are seen, if they are but at a very low level (under 50%) then this points to the dish having moved.

For Sky+HD boxes.

Press "Services" on your Sky remote control and you will see the main menu
with "Options" being highlighted.

2:- Select the "Settings" menu using the right arrow button and press
select.

3:- Use the left / right arrows to scroll to "Signal" and press select, the
grey bars displayed will show you the strength of the signal being
received.
